The Department of Pathology, which served in the Department of Diseases and Clinical Sciences from August 1984 to November 2006, has been continuing its academic, routine and scientific studies under the Department of Pre-Clinical Sciences since November 2006.
In the Department of Pathology, both alive and dead animals, internal organs and biopsy materials brought by the clinical sciences and animal owners are examined macroscopically and microscopically. In addition, appropriate samples are taken for microbiological and parasitological examinations in cases deemed necessary and sent to the relevant laboratories.
The department has 6 professors, 4 professors and 2 associate professors and a research assistant. The research topics of our department are mostly selected among the study subjects that can be useful for our country and local animal husbandry and thus to the economy and also provide useful information for the animal owners. For this purpose, especially in domestic livestock animals, issues which cause economic losses due to low yields and deaths are emphasized. The most important causes of loss in sheep and cattle pneumonia and other respiratory system problems, male and female genital system, urinary system and breast pathology, digestive and nervous system diseases, poultry diseases pathology and domestic animals are among the research subjects.
